Rootconf is HasGeek’s annual conference – and now a growing community – around DevOps, systems engineering, DevSecOps, security and cloud. The annual Rootconf conference takes place in May each year, with the exception of 2019 when the conference will be held in June.
Besides the annual conference, we also run meetups, one-off public lectures, debates and open houses on DevOps, systems engineering, distributed systems, legacy infrastructure, and topics related to Rootconf.
This is the place to submit proposals for your work, and get them peer reviewed by practitioners from the community.
Topics for submission:
We seek proposals – for short and long talks, as well as workshops and tutorials – on the following topics:
- Case studies of shift from batch processing to stream processing
- Real-life examples of service discovery
- Case studies on move from monolith to service-oriented architecture
- Network security
- Monitoring, logging and alerting – running small-scale and large-scale systems
- Cloud architecture – implementations and lessons learned
- Optimizing infrastructure
- Immutable infrastructure
- Aligning people and teams with infrastructure at scale
- Security for infrastructure

Prometheus: Solving monitoring for EVERYONE
Prometheus, now a graduated CNCF project, is the de facto leader in the monitoring and metrics space being used by 1000s of companies in the world. With the 2.0 launch nearly a year behind us, we are now focused on making Prometheus boring. i.e, more stable, more usable and even MOAR user friendly!
This talk will cover the new developments and the future roadmap of the project which includes among other things better remote integrations, backfilling API, security improvements and OpenMetrics.
We start with an introduction of Prometheus and it’s history. We then cover the strides we made in the recent time and how we solved several long standing problems that were hurting adoption like backfilling, data backup and long-term storage.
We then move on to the exciting things planned for the future which would cement Promethues’s place as the leader in monitoring.
Goutham is a developer from India who started his journey as an infra intern at large company where he worked on deploying Prometheus. After that initial encounter, he started contributing to Prometheus and interned with CoreOS, working on Prometheus’ new storage engine. He is now a maintainer for TSDB, the engine behind Prometheus 2.0. He now works at Grafana Labs on open-source observability tools. When not hacking away, he is either on his bike, or is binge watching GCN!
